“Fists of all ages shall be pumping!” (Vanity Fair). Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher who turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. This high-octane smash features 14 new songs from ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER, all the original songs from the movie, and musical theater’s first-ever kids rock band, playing their instruments live on stage. “An inspiring jolt of energy, joy and mad skillz!” (Entertainment Weekly).
I laughed. I cried. I rocked! They’ve taken the movie to a whole new level!
SCHOOL OF ROCK is the totally delightful, purely entertaining, crowd-pleasing kind of show that you can bring your kids and out-of-town cousins to. Not liking it is akin to not liking fun.
SCHOOL OF ROCK offers us a chance to be kids again, only with more talent than we ever had.
